Dr Katie Peterson
I am a research associate working on the MLSE study. The study aims to develop and fully validate a new clinical test - the Mini Linguistic State Examination (MLSE) - for classifying primary progressive aphasia. I will also use the MLSE to characterize language impairment in other dementias, such as those associated with a movement disorder (e.g. progressive supranuclear palsy, and corticobasal syndrome).
I completed my PhD in the Department of Psychiatry under the supervision of Professor Barbara Sahakian and Professor John Pickard. My PhD research investigated cognitive and neuropsychiatric symptoms in patients with normal pressure hydrocephalus.
